Car-free "Play Street" in Queens is a Great Idea! (Video)
Our friend Clarence at StreetFilms sent us his latest cinematic masterpiece (I suck at keeping expectations low, don't I?). It's about a section of street in Jackson Heights, in Queens, that was closed to cars for the "time-to-play-outside" months and converted into a much-needed park/public space. As you can see in the video, it was a resounding success! It's a good model to follow for other cities. Via StreetFilms.
